MADISON, Wis. – The Transportation Security Administration is reminding travelers how to travel with their pets after a dog was found inside a backpack during an X-ray screening at an airport in Wisconsin.

According to a tweet by the TSA Great Lakes Division, a small dog was accidentally left in the bag and went through the x-ray at the Dane County Regional Airport in Madison this week.

TSA also reminded travelers the rules to follow with a pet:

  • Notifying the airline you’re traveling with an animal
  • Removing the pet from the bag/carrier
  • Sending all items, including empty bags/carriers through the x-ray machine

According to WKMG-TV, a cat was found just a week ago at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, headed to Melbourne Orlando International Airport.
